A Collect to Eschew Grumbling

Great King of all creation, in whose fields we labor, forgive us when in this fallen and struggling world, we grumble and complain against you. Incline our hearts toward gratitude and to see your generosity, that we would turn to you in thanks and strengthen our ties to you and find security in your love, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ‘ Now when the first came, they thought they would receive more; but each of them also received the usual daily wage. And when they received it, they grumbled against the landowner.’ – Matthew 20:10-11
